In this fictional tale an executive learns the great secret of leadership effectiveness: to get out of the self-deceptive box of narcissism and start connecting in empathic and respectful ways with others. We’re in the box when we treat others as objects or focus on what’s wrong with them instead of what we can do to help. Without discounting the value of strong managerial direction, the story reasserts something we know but don’t practice--that people are more likely to be enthusiastic and effective when they know we care about them. The smooth reading by the incomparable William Dufris allows the story to be absorbed and savored. A worthwhile addition to anyone’s audio library of management classics.
